Program Overview

 
Metaphysical Romp II is about 21st-century metaphysics: mastering the art of living metaphysically. We focus on metaphysical principles, state-of-the-art science, and practical application to help metaphysics make sense in today’s world.
 
Metaphysical Romp II includes:
•           Information from Heart-Centered Metaphysics and Applying Heart-Centered Metaphysics.
•           Discussion of what the idea is, explaining it, and connecting current science (quantum physics, neuroscience, positivity, neurotheology, etc.).
•           Practical applications demonstrating how these concepts are useful on a daily basis, with actual scenarios where applicable.

The conversation ranged from the Infinite Field of Potential to the Zero Point Field and the importance of limitation for manifestation. Basically, each and every living thing is demonstrating. If we are not demonstrating, we are not living in this physical realm. There was no Metaphysical Adventure this week.

    Episode Description:
    The entire program was devoted to applying the Twelve Powers. The example was a person with negative self-talk. We demonstrated how the Powers might have been unconsciously used to formulate a negative belief like “I am not worthy.” This belief then would be the stimulus for the negative self-talk. Next we demonstrated how this person could use the Twelve Powers to change the thoughts, ideas, and beliefs in consciousness as well as what actions might be taken in the outer realm to support the change. We posted a chart at bit.ly/metaromp for this process, which you can then use for the Metaphysical Adventure, “PowerUP Your Beliefs.” It is here that you can also post your comments.

Causes are not remedied merely by dealing with effects. … If a cause is removed its effect disappears. … Every seeming ill has a cause, and that cause can be remedied; then the effect will disappear.” Fillmore also states, “There is but one power. We use it as we will.” Fillmore also outlines a prayer process.

    Episode Description:
    During this week’s program, we explored the fifth lesson of the six-lesson series titled “The Hidden Man of the Bible.” It was titled “The End of the Journey: Regenerate Man Jesus Christ.” Charles Fillmore states, “What should the spiritual-minded man, the man who wants to demonstrate God, do about it? He must get acquainted with himself [and] begin to see some of the possibilities Jesus demonstrated.” Fillmore tries to connect science with spirituality. He literally believed that we are to release the energy that is in our cells, “He [Jesus] released the atomic energy in those inner atoms that compose the cells, and the tissues of his body were stripped of that outer crust which makes the flesh man, and all at once there gleamed forth in his whole organism the energy, light, and life of the atomic structure.”

    The affirmation at the end of lesson four was, “I am the light of the world.” In lesson five, Fillmore shared the purpose of these lessons: “These lessons are to reveal to us that perfect man which we have all been idealizing, which was created by the Infinite Mind in the beginning.” According to Fillmore, “The lesson tonight revolves around the idea of the Ideal Man made manifest. Metaphysicians reduce all activities, whether in themselves or outside themselves, to ideas and the activity of ideas. When you know how to do that, it will give you a key to the past and present, and you can reduce it all to just now."

    On today’s program we reviewed and completed Lesson Two, given on October 16, 1934, and then launched into the third lesson, given on October 23, 1934. These lessons are part of a six-lesson series titled “The Hidden Man of the Bible.” These classes were conducted by Charles and Cora Fillmore in 1934. Here are some Fillmorian insights from this lesson: “The fact is, that everything is hid from man. The real man—man is ‘I’, simply ‘I’, naked ‘I’—‘I’ without consciousness. This is the beginning of man. Man in his spiritual identity. The great work of man is to realize and to bring to his consciousness and become aware of his divinity, his divine source, and the privilege that comes with that source.”

    This program begins the exploration of the second lesson in a six-lesson series titled “The Hidden Man of the Bible.” These classes were led by Charles and Cora Fillmore in 1934. This particular lesson was delivered on October 16, 1934. In this lesson, Fillmore gives his view of the fall of man: “We are told there was a ‘fall of man.’ That is the teaching of Christianity. What is our explanation to that idea? We can see that every one of us have in a measure separated ourselves from this Hidden Wisdom that is the Jehovah God within us.” Followed by this a bit further on: “We can find when we come into spiritual consciousness we don’t go off into excesses in any way, but we rest in equilibrium.”

    This week we began a new series, “The Hidden Man of the Bible.” These lessons were given by Charles and Cora Fillmore in the fall of 1934. These unusually clear and understandable lessons contain some sweet gems. Interestingly, Fillmore gives a bit on his view of how the Bible came about and the Apocrypha. He also mentions Hitler and his followers. He boldly states, “We shall ask that a new Bible be complied and that the feminine side of man be expressed more prominently in that new Bible.” Fillmore identifies this man within, the hidden man, in this way: “The fact is this man within is God. Concentrate on God identified. It is the God center within every one of us that will reveal to us what we are in God Mind.” The affirmation for the week is: I am the man hid with Christ in God, and I am glorified in the discovery that the kingdom of God is within me.

    This week we start with some commentary on the beliefs of Charles and Myrtle Fillmore. Basically, I share that there is no one belief system. There are at least three. Then we explore but do not complete Lesson 12 on the Power of Life in the series, “Releasing the Holy Spirit of God in Man.” Here are a couple of highlights: “He [Jesus] seemed to have dealt with two aspects of life, the personal life and that limited activity of life in personal consciousness, and that larger universal life in the super-consciousness.” And there was this shocking statement: “The attainment of eternal life is ahead of us.” The affirmation for this lesson is: Through Christ I am conscious of the quickening life of the Spirit in both mind and body.

    This week we explore Lesson 11 on the Power of Elimination in the series of lessons titled “Releasing the Holy Spirit of God in Man.” The class met on December 22, 1931, and includes some metaphysical interpretation of the story of the birth of Jesus. While Charles Fillmore gets into some pretty edgy material around the earth being a kind of insane asylum, he also gets into some meaty material around the Power of Elimination. One important detail may contradict our current understanding that Fillmore wanted his body to last forever. Fillmore states, “Deny materiality.” Then he states, “WE all have this perfect body, waiting for us to incorporate it; but we must get rid of the old body ideas. Get out of your mind that you have any material body. Say, 'My body is spiritual. God is the Author of this temple. This is God’s temple.’ Does God live in a material temple? No. God is Spirit.” Here is an affirmation from the lesson: “I am willing to give up the old material idea of life that I may have the new spiritual idea of life.”

We “direct it [Zeal] to the upbuilding of the mind, that is the soul, and the body." The affirmation for Zeal is, “Spiritual Zeal now incites me to glorious achievement and I am successful in all my undertakings.”

    The ninth lesson focuses on the Power of Spiritual Law and Order. Divine Law is a rule of action. Fillmore said, “Through the understanding of the Christ Law in man you can wash out your karma.” The affirmation Fillmore used in this lesson is, “Releasing myself from bondage to the laws of flesh, I am a new creature in Christ Jesus.”

    The eighth lesson focuses on the Power of Will. Fillmore said, “In the will is the executive power of the mind. It has no intelligence. It is not wise. It has no real understanding. It has to be constantly taught. ... The understanding will reveal to you what your action should be. And the will executes what you have determined. ... We are using it all the time.”

    This week we complete the exploration of the sixth lesson (Imagination) in the series based on Charles Fillmore’s class titled “Releasing the Holy Spirit of God in Man.” Fillmore shared, “Jesus said, ‘If two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father who is in heaven.’ It means in this consciousness of material things if we hold to a thought so that the inner and outer agree on any proposition, you can so impress it upon your soul that it will bring forth.” Fillmore also cautions against hypnotism and mesmerism, saying, “Never allow yourself to be a medium. Mediumship is simply allowing another entity to come in and put your conscious mind to sleep.”
     
    The seventh lesson focuses on the Power of Understanding. Fillmore said, “Where do we get this knowledge and understanding? Knowledge and understanding is in the seed idea. Go down into your inner consciousness and release that idea of the all-knowing One and that you understand the law.”

    This week we completed the exploration of the fifth lesson (Power) in the series based on Charles Fillmore’s class titled “Releasing the Holy Spirit of God in Man.” There are two affirmations to use from this lesson: “The Holy Spirit is here. We are of one mind.” “All power is given unto me in mind and body.”
     
    The sixth lesson focuses on the Power of Imagination as well as a very interesting discussion of the metaphysical interpretation of Genesis I. Charles states, “In the first chapter [of Genesis] he is the image and likeness of God. God identified, or God individualized; or, in other words, as God personalized—that is, of course, in the outer expression. But the Jehovah God is God individualized—that part of us that begins to say, ‘I AM. I AM THAT I AM.’” He also says, “How shall you increase your imagination? Power? You naturally think that that imagination power is from God. It comes from the one Mind." The affirmation recommended at the end of the talk is, “I in Thee and Thou in me, that we may be made perfect in one.”

A key idea from the last half of this lesson is an affirmation: Divine Love manifest itself in me. There is a short Charles Fillmore guided affirmation at the end of the program.
     
    We started the fifth lesson, "The Power of Power." Charles shared, “In order to understand mind—our source—we must enlarge our ideas. … It is a development of the ideas that we already have waiting our recognition. I call this the releasing of the Holy Spirit of God in us.” He also shared, “Man has dominion over ideas, over thoughts. Man is the moving force in his own being." The final affirmation for the Power of Power is: All power is given unto me in mind and body.

    This week we completed the exploration of the third lesson in the series based on Charles Fillmore’s class titled, “Releasing the Holy Spirit of God in Man.” The third lesson is focused on the Power of Judgment. A key idea from this lesson is, “Now, we find that every day is the day of judgment. We are getting the results of our past states of consciousness. We will not see the perfection we desire in our affairs until we change the cause.”
     
    We were able to start the fourth lesson about the Power of Love. Charles shared, “[Love] smooths out all the inharmonies of life if you know how to use it. … The point we are going to bring out today is the control of the quality called love, so that we may get the mastery of it and direct it to a constructive current in our lives, in our affairs, and in our family relations.”

In it, Fillmore calls it Understanding then defines it like the Power of Judgment. “The lesson today is along this line of releasing what we call understanding; spiritually interpreted, that is wisdom and judgment, discrimination, and that fundamental faculty in us which helps us to arrive at conclusions.” In a later lesson he actually reviews the Power of Understanding.

    This week we explore the second lesson in the series based on Charles Fillmore’s class titled “Releasing the Holy Spirit of God in Man.” This lesson “inquires for us into the quality, or character of mind, called strength, stability, endurance.” One key idea is that we have been binding, or bottling up or storing up, various ideas in the subconscious mind for future use. This future use is called regeneration. Regeneration “is the opening up in man of first a great concept that he is a spiritual being and that the use of all of God’s powers is his; that is, the Holy Spirit of God manifesting in the development of this higher principle. The higher principle is called the Christ, or the Messiah.”

The class series is titled “Releasing the Holy Spirit of God in Man.” One of the fantastic concepts Fillmore puts forth is that we are the Holy Spirit. The implication is “Mind-Idea” is in the Absolute Realm while “Expression” is the Holy Spirit in the relative realm: “Quit thinking about yourself as a limited personal being. Think about yourself as Spirit; as the Holy Spirit. And what is that? It means the Holy Spirit. People say, 'Do you mean to say that man is the Holy Spirit or God?' Yes, certainly.”

    1) “The will is the executive power of the mind and if left to its own resources becomes arrogant, dictatorial, and tyrannical.” 2) “Jesus realized the importance of linking his executive power with the executive power of God.”

It has the tantalizing title “The Principles Used by Jesus in His Teaching and Healing.” Some highlights include: “Christ is the sum total of Divine Life existing eternally in God-Mind and constantly expressing Itself in all men. … God-Mind created man whole and perfect. … The mind was not ‘invented’ by the brain, but it has evolved the brain as its most efficient instrument. … Our mind is formed of ideas. Every idea in the mind of man is charge with spiritual power. … All creative processes begin and end in the mind. The creative Mind ends its work in its perfect idea; man takes up that idea and carries it into expression within his soul and into manifestation in his body.”

Let your mind use it and let it bear witness in our faith.” The affirmation is: I have living faith in the ruling power of the Christ Mind now manifesting in me and through me.

    A key idea from Lesson 13 is, “How should you know about Truth? By inner thinking. By getting still; quickening in you r soul, mind. When you get the spiritual Mind quickened, you will know you are right; you know; you will know because you will feel it, realize the expansion of your Spiritual Mind. … What is Truth? Fundamentally Truth is God; Sod is Spirit; God is Mind; God is the Source of our Intelligence.” The affirmation from Lesson 13 is: We are unified in Christ and the overcoming love of the Holy Spirit is manifesting in us and through us.

It means, in his character. ‘Character’ is represented by the ‘Name.' And that name or character is broadcast in the Realm of the Spirit, Mind. It is awaiting your adaptation of it to your own needs. … Now your Word is the creative light in your mind. Your Word, richly formulated, rightly inspired by your mind, can be sent forth and whatever you decree shall come to pass.” The affirmation for Lesson 11 is: The Word of Christ dwells richly in me and I am unified with all persons of like mind.
                 
    A key concept from lesson 12 is, “We have to get the full understanding in our minds and we have to apply these principles until you begin this process of thinking of yourself as the Christ of God. … That Christ of God—that Ideal Man.” The affirmation from Lesson 12 is: I have a living faith in the ruling power fo the Christ Mind now manifesting in me and through me.

It is the intangible, unalterable thing, the real I of yourself, Spirit, the Super-Mind … that we should get this Spiritual Man and the material thinker into unity.” The affirmation from Lesson 9 is: The Spiritual Ethers are filled with plenty; Prosperity is in the air and I have abundance for every need

    A key concept from Lesson 10 is “Everything is contained within man. We don’t have to go outside of ourselves to find even God. The fact is, unless we do release with ourselves these God-given essences, we never will know God … this material world that we see about us that seems so palpable and tangible, is the most unreal of all the creations.” The affirmation for Lesson 10 is: The oil of life [love] is released in my body and the Light of Understanding is being manifest in my soul.

This talk dwelled on the concept that as we take on the “Mind of Christ,” we are transformed into part of a new race of men and women.

    Charles Fillmore shared, “We find in ourselves these fundamental—faculties—the Twelve Faculties—and each faculty with the capacity of involving and expressing all the other twelve. … So, in the regeneration of man … we shall evolve out of the material man the Twelve-Fold Man and that Twelve-Fold Man will rule through the understanding of the powers of his mind in handling the forces of the so-called material world and be another kind of man, a type man.” The affirmation given to the students is: The Word of Christ dwells richly in me and I am unified with all persona of like mind.

Some key ideas expressed in the talk were thoughts around how we are all solar-powered in that we store up energy from the sun and that we release that power to energize our bodies. Another really cool key idea is “…everything about us, all power, all the universe, every substance can be reduce to ideas, and that man is idea. He is an aggregation of ideas.” The affirmation for this lesson: The oil of life is released in my body and the Light of Understanding is being manifest in my soul.

The focus of the lesson is best summed with Fillmore’s own words, “We have got to practice with a-b-c’s, which is a letting go, breaking up, in our minds of this idea of the reality of the substance of life, time, space, and all these things have entered into the material world and clamped down on us and hold us in bondage. We want all to join in the denial of time and space, and the joyous affirmation of new life in Christ, in the Kingdom of God within us.

It was given on Tuesday, November 1, 1932. At the end of the sixth lesson Fillmore recommended that the following affirmation be held for a week: The royal majesty, mastery and dominion of God is enthroned in me and I wisely make manifest the life and substance of the luminiferious ether, the Kingdom of God. In lesson seven he talks quite a bit about "current science" and acknowledges some of the issue with the concept of the ethers. He also states, "Modern science and metaphysics are dealing with the same factors and would eventually come together and this so-called material universe is not material at all, but it is spiritual—and modern science is proving it."

Fillmore makes this interesting point in regards to healing: "Don’t have yourself thinking about glands or brain cells, but think about the idea of Power." Jesus gave us our Key Word again. He said, "All Power is given unto me in heaven and on earth." Applied personally, where is heaven? In mind. Where is earth? In the body. "All power is given unto me in ‘mind’ and body." Fillmore instructs his students to hold that affirmation and this one: "Say to your own body, 'I come that you might have life, and more abundant life.'"

Their historic value is obvious since we witness how Charles Fillmore attempted to connect the "science of his day" to metaphysical principles.

Charles Fillmore also shares about our True Reality and a fall in consciousness: "We all had that glory with our Father God. But in looking away from the Invisible, Omnipresent, Divine Intelligence, we have dropped down, and we have in consequence what is called 'the Fallen Man.'"

    This week we completed reviewing the third class in the Fillmore Class series titled, "The Fourth Dimension and Its Uses by Man." It is titled "The Finer Forces of Mind and Body Identified as the Garden of Eden: Elemental Substance and Life." Then we launched into the fourth lesson, "Was the First Manifestation of the Human Race in the Ether or on the Earth?" A key idea from the third lesson is this: "beholding in our minds good in everything, everything is, really, at its source, good." This means that no matter if the appearance is good, bad, or ugly, it is the originating IDEA that is good because it is of God. It is humankind that determines how the IDEA is used. In part of the fourth lesson we reviewed, a key idea is that the "IDEA of Man" (the Christ Idea) is perfect and that we have to prove our own perfection. Fillmore says, "… we must live in the consciousness of the Perfect Man (the Christ Idea), and not the natural man, and the unfoldment of the Perfect Man will proceed in divine order."

    This week we will continue the third lesson, "The Finer Forces of Mind and Body Identified as the Garden of Eden: Elemental Substance and Life" of the Charles Fillmore class series titled "The Fourth Dimension and Its Uses by Man." In this talk, Fillmore states that "the central idea for this lesson is 'Understanding-wisdom-discrimination-judgment.'" Here is one key idea: "This universal Substance is pictured in the Mind of God, as Jehovah, because Jehovah God is the second presentation of the creative Mind which it breathed into the dust of the ground and man came forth. There you see the process. You have Mind and Its idea and then that is made manifest."

    This week we completed reviewing the second lesson in the 13-lesson series titled, "The Fourth Dimension and Its Uses by Man." This second lesson is titled, "How Man, by Super-Mind Thinking, Can Control and Use the Luminiferous Ether of Space." From this lesson, we learned "the thought of man is the directive power not only of his mind, but of all the universe all about him.  … we are the avenues through which this essence [God] is made manifest." Through glimpses of the luminiferous ethers in our minds, we can express it in any function of the organism in strength. We then just started reviewing the third lesson, "The Finer Forces of Mind and Body Identified as the Garden of Eden: Elemental Substance and Life," delivered on Tuesday, October 4, 1932. Charles Fillmore shares, "In this course of lessons, we are seeking to explain man's fundamental spiritual being and his relation to the manifest world; especially that manifestation that takes place in his immediate neighborhood, which is his own mind and body." Further, Fillmore states that "the central idea for this lesson is 'Understanding-wisdom-discrimination-judgment.'"

    This week we nearly completed reviewing the second lesson in the 13-lesson series titled, "The Fourth Dimension and Its Uses by Man." This second lesson is titled, "How Man, by Super-Mind Thinking, Can Control and Use the Luminiferous Ether of Space." It was given on September 27, 1932. This talk focuses on the importance of the luminiferous ether, what it is and how we use it. It is in this lesson we get our first glimpse that this series of lessons is based on the Twelve Powers of Man. Charles Fillmore states, "The lesson today is essentially the use of this function in strength." The first lesson was on the use of luminiferous ether in faith.

    Today  we are starting an intensive series of programs based on the actual transcripts of a 13-week lecture series titled “The Fourth Dimension and Its Uses by Man.” It was given by Charles Fillmore and his secretary, Miss Cora Dedrick, in 1932.  The first class is titled “How to Use Spiritually to Quicken Man’s Super-Mind Faculties and Use Them in Character-Building.” The affirmation for the month is, “God’s understanding quickens and increases my understanding and I know the truth.” The primary focus of the talk centers around the what and where of the Kingdom of Heaven. Charles Fillmore states, “And the Scriptures plainly teach we must have an unfoldment of the mind of Christ. … What we need is to grasp these truths for ourselves in order to use them.”

    Today’s talk was delivered by Charles Fillmore on Sunday, December 30, 1928, and is titled, "The Christian Life Is a Life of Praise." In this talk, Fillmore states that the problem is, “… we spend a good deal of time praising our thougnts.” Then he says  “ … we are teaching here at Unity: how to lay hold of the laws of the mind, spiritually interpreted; how to raise our minds to higher planes of consciousness and establish them so that they become receptive to the Higher Mind. … Paul gives us the key to the accomplishment of this ….”

It carries the handwritten title of “Thought.” At the beginning, Fillmore states, "If you are thinking good, strong, powerful thoughts and thinking about what you are doing, you send out a strong vibration. The wave length is according to your intelligence. It goes out as a white light; but if you are thinking ignorant, careless thoughts, they go out as a slow vibration." Near the end of the talk Fillmore says, "Say with your very soul: 'I am quickened with life, Love fills my soul. I’m awake in the light—Christ makes me whole.'"

    This week’s talk was given by Charles Fillmore on Wednesday, October 29, 1924, to Unity employees. It was most likely the true last talk in the 12-week series given in the fall of 1924, although it is not filed that way. In this talk, he also talks about the Power of Life. His chief focus is upon the harmonizing Power of Love. Love is the power or ability to harmonize. He ended this interesting talk with the following: “Love is the greatest thing in my work and through love I give peace, spiritual harmony, to everything I do. I express love. I speak only words of love. I think only words of love, I think only thoughts of love, I see only love everywhere. I am radiant love. Amen.”
     
    In The Revealing Word, we explored from “Holy Spirt, sin against” through and including “hypocrite.” Next week, we move into the letter “I.”

This talk was delivered by Charles Fillmore on October 22, 1924, and is about Judgment, and more precisely, Justice and Judgment. In this talk, Fillmore emphasizes the importance of not judging by appearances. Fillmore states, "You are passing judgment on all things. You are judging other people, conditions, yourselves. When you awaken the Christ mind there is no longer any judgment, you will not condemn nor pass judgment on even yourselves."
     
    In The Revealing Word, we explored the entry titled “Holy Spirit.”

This talk was delivered by Charles Fillmore on October 15, 1924, and is about the Powers of Will and Understanding. He emphasizes the importance of these Powers—developing them and working them together. He focuses on the concept of “Not my will but Thine be done!” In referring to the Divine Will, Charles Fillmore states, “WE know there is a great universal will and the success of our will puts us in line with that will. Fillmore asserts that “… the New Testament is a manual for one who is in the regeneration, who is following along these lines, overcoming sense consciousness, raising it to spiritual consciousness.” He goes on to say how it is done.

    In The Revealing Word, we explored from “Holy Spirit, sin against” through and including the first paragraph of “I Am.”

    This week we explored the seventh employee talk in a series of 12. (Lesson 6 is one of two missing talks.) Today’s talk delivered by Charles Fillmore on Wednesday, September 17, 1924, is titled “Praise and Prayer.” After an introductory piece on the Lord’s Prayer being a prayer of affirmations, Fillmore gets into the meat of the talk. The lesson is partially about how we get what we want. The most profound thing Fillmore says is, “How shall you get this larger consciousness you aspire to? By praising yourself. … Some persons think this would enlarge the ego. Well, it might if you praised the personality but if you praise yourself spiritual you enlarge your [awareness] of your spiritual Self and the little ego of personality grows less and less, disappears entirely, and you find yourself one with the universal Spirit.”
     
    This week we also explored the terms “healing and will power” to “hearing” in The Revealing Word.

Today’s talk, delivered by Charles Fillmore on Wednesday, September 10, 1924, is titled, “Denials and Affirmations.” In this talk he shares how to use denials and affirmations to control our thoughts. Fillmore states, "The power within can control every thought in your mind, the power of thought. We do it just as we do in the outer. We say yes [affirmations] and no [denials]. … It is natural for you to control your thoughts. You are constantly doing it. You can’t make a move in your mind or body without thought activity."

    This week we also explore the terms “harmony, divine, how lost” to “healing absent” in The Revealing Word.

Fillmore shares, “As you think, so you will be. The thought is the foundation of everything that is made manifest. … You can produce results in your world that you thought were beyond your reach just through the simple use of thought.”

    This week we explored the third employee talk in a series of 12 of which we have 10. Today’s talk, delivered by Charles Fillmore on Wednesday, August 27, 1924, is titled, “Man.” This talk shares about Spiritual Man, or the I Am. Fillmore makes some great points in this talk. In it he once again emphasizes his view of the material world and God: “God did not plan this material world. Man plans the material world. God plans the man.” It is important to emphasize this man is not the body or personality. “Christ is the man, the image and likeness of the infinite mind which over shines every one of us.” Finally, he once again makes the point that we use the Divine and infers the Divine does not use us when he states, “… and then if you can conceive that all that Mind is right at hand for your use, all ideas in the Divine Mind can be grasped and used by you.”

    This week we also explored the terms “Grace” through “Gravitation” in The Revealing Word.

    This week we explore the second employee talk in a series. Today’s talk, delivered by Charles Fillmore on Wednesday, August 20, 1924, is entitled, “Science of Being.” Fillmore shares about Jesus, Jesus Christ, Christ and Christ Jesus. He shares that Christ is a spiritual man and emphatically states, “You see this doesn’t refer to a man.” I get on my soapbox a bit about Charles’ use of language, lack of precision and consistency. However, in this talk, he makes his main idea clear. It is simply this: Christ is the perfect Idea of your Spiritual Beingness!
     
    This week we also explored the terms “God, will of” through “gospel” in The Revealing Word.

This talk focuses on the inner world of our own consciousness. Fillmore says something very profound: “So, I say, we really are seeking to conquer the world and that world is a world made up of our own consciousness. We are told that we do not know anything outside of our consciousness, and we never shall know anything outside of our own consciousness.”

    In The Revealing Word, we managed to just begin the entry “God, will of.”

    Original air date: Tuesday, August 14, 2012
    Episode Description:

    This week Charles Fillmore’s talk is entitled “An Awakening” and was delievered on March 5, 1933. It is unusual in that Fillmore speaks a bit about Roosevelt’s inauguration. The focus is on awakening love. Fillmore states, “We must love life. We must love the life activity in our bodies and in the bodies of all persons. We must love the activity of life everywhere. We must love life in its mechanical energy, because life is essential.” This is all shared in the context of Jesus raising the daughter of the ruler of the synagogue from the dead.

    In The Revealing Word, we explored “God transcendent” and got a little into "God, will of.”

    This week’s Charles Fillmore talk was a Wednesday lesson probably delivered to employees on October 29, 1924. It carried the handwritten title of “Love.” Fillmore begins by saying, “Our lesson this morning is the realization of the harmonizing, vitalizing power in man. That power is called love.” Fillmore shares, “the spirit of love draws to me that which belongs to me. The greatest of all the faculties of the mind is love, that is, the most powerful.” You will find that I tweak and somewhat disagree with some of what Charles Fillmore shares.

    In The Revealing Word, we explored from “God, responsibility to” to “God said.”

    This week we explore a talk given by Charles Fillmore on March 16, 1913. It is entitled "The Test of Abraham’s Faith." It is essentially a metaphysical look at the story of Abraham being called to sacrifice his son, Isaac. Some interesting quotes from the talk include: "Mind; Ideas; Manifestations. This generalizes every movement of man, in all his acts. … Now, this law is operative everywhere." "The meaning of sacrifice is that you shall relinquish, or let go of some limited idea, and for the purpose of making way for a larger idea." He also shares about the Powers of Imagination and Faith. At one point, Fillmore declares the reason for us not demonstrating what is in our mind, "Because you have gone beyond the conviction of your faith."
     
    In The Revealing Word, we explored from "God, manifest" to "God, reconciliation with."

    This week’s talk by Charles Fillmore was given on August 9, 1931, and is entitled “The Unfolding of the Higher Self.” It is based on the conversion of Saul on the way to Damascus. Fillmore states, “We look upon this experience of Paul’s as a step in man’s [humankind’s] evolution. The development in man [humankind] of that higher principle which is latent in every man and woman. … Jesus was an example of the practical unfoldment of a universal principle … Every one of us has this God Principle.” Finally, Charles Fillmore shares, “Jesus Christ is the great Head, showing us the way to the unfoldment of this spiritual principle.”
     
    In The Revealing Word we reviewed from “God, centered in” to and including “God-man.”

    This week’s  talk was given by Charles Fillmore while on his honeymoon trip with Cora to California on Sunday, April 29, 1934. Charles Fillmore was 80 years old! The talk is entitled “The Fourth Dimension.” It is a talk given in four lessons:

    1) “How spiritual to man’s [humankind’s] supermind faculties and use them in character building.”

    2) “The finer forces of mind and body identified as the Garden of Eden; elemental substance and life.”

    3) “How man [humankind], by supermind thinking, can control and use the luminiferous ether of space.”

    4) “The currents of thought in the race mind [collective consciousness] manipulate the invisible substance, and make for lack or for prosperity, at the option of the thinkers.”

    In The Revealing Word, we reviewed from “God as Spirit” through and including, “God as Truth.”

    This week’s broadcast focused on a talk given by Charles Fillmore on Sunday, July 11, 1937. The title is “Helps Toward Freedom.” This talk expresses common themes: “the inner logic of this reveals that Real ‘Me’ of every one of us is a spark of divinity, … life is what you make, … the divine law through which we are released form our attachments to the material side of life.” Its focus is upon Moses representing the law that provides freedom from the darkenss, the Egypt, the sense consciousness in humankind. Fillmore shares that we all begin our work in personal consciousness, which is the ego or personality. Ultimately, we must all be “obedient” to Divine Mind.

    This week we explored “God as Spirit” in The Revealing Word.

    This week we explore a radio talk given by Charles Fillmore on October 14, 1923. The talk starts and ends on the interpretation of the Bible. In the middle, it becomes a bit of a treatise on Jehovah/I Am and Power. Fillmore clearly defines how we use Scripture and what metaphysical Bible interpretation is all about. For Fillmore, the solution to rampaging monkey mind thoughts is speaking the word with power. Here is a great affirmation and denial from the talk: “I am Spiritual Power and there is no opposition to my word.”

    This week we explore a talk probably given to employees on November 11, 1924. In this talk, Charles Fillmore explored the Silence as “the very foundation of the spiritual quality that we all are seeking.” Clearly, Fillmore’s definition of the Silence included some present time awareness, whereas today, I like to separate present time spiritual awareness from the actual Silence. Fillmore also shared, “There is a great substantial, eternal life right here present, open to every one of us and the object of our existence is to make contact with that life.” Fillmore touches briefly on communion as well.

    During the final segment, we explored from “God as lawgiver” and “God as principle." Once again the challenge of anthropomorphic language shows up in these definitions.

    This week’s talk was a Wednesday lesson given by Charles Fillmore on January 14, 1925. It carries the handwritten title, “Wee Wisdom for Children Effect.” A more appropriate title might be “The Law of Mind Action.” In it, Fillmore emphasizes the Law of Mind Action, speaks a bit about clairvoyance, as well as differences between the intellectual mind and the Spiritual Mind. Fillmore states, “We find that he [Jesus Christ] had two very definite phases of mind activity: one is the natural, intellectual mind that never gets into the ideals of the absolute. The other is the spiritual mind or that discerning mind that knows the truth about things and goes to the very gist of the subject.”
     
    In our review of the entries in The Revealing Word, we review from “God as health” to “God as law.”

    Episode Description:

    This week we explore a Wednesday evening talk given by Charles Fillmore on August 13, 1924. Its handwritten title is “Conquer.” In the words of Charles Fillmore, this talk focuses on, “So, I say we really are all seeking to conquer the world and that world is a world made up of our own consciousness.” It is a talk that focuses on the Power of Power/Dominion. Fillmore states, “We should have dominion over our own thoughts, over impulses, the activities of mind, soul body.” Fillmore shares how to change the world by changing our minds because “your world is what you make.”

    In The Revealing Word, we continued with the fourth paragraph of the entry on “God.” In these two short paragraphs, the emphasis seems to shift back and forth between an external God and an internal Divinity. We conclude with “God as health.”
     

  • Episode: Holy Communion
    Original air date: Tuesday, May 08, 2012
    Episode Description:
    This week we explore a Wednesday evening talk given by Charles Fillmore on February 20, 1924. It is entitled “Holy Communion.” The talk focuses on the traditional view of Holy Communion as well as the Unity view. Quite surprisingly, Fillmore states, "So you can see the Catholic Church is in a measure right.”  He also says, “You take it [the Life of Christ] in on faith, and there is the preparation of your understanding. You understand what substance is and how it works. There is only one substance. Our bodies are all made from one substance, and when we get into that substance we are all members of the body of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the more we think about that the more we come into that and that is the Holy Communion.”
     
    In The Revealing Word, we start over again with the entry on “God.” We explore the first  three paragraphs. The emphasis in this sharing is noticing how the definition of God bounces back and forth from an anthropomorphic God to “God is not person but Principle.”

    This week we review a talk given by Charles Fillmore on December 5, 1932, entitled, “Learning to Unify Mixed Impulses.”  In Charles’ own words the talk is basically about this: “We have this mixed state of mind, and it is deluding every one of us into believing that certain things are true that are not true: and it is our duty and it our great and everlasting work to bring up within us and baptize our souls with this ever-living water of Spirit, this well of living water within.”
     
    In the last segment we began our exploration of the term “God” in The Revealing Word.

    Episode Description:
    This week’s Charles Fillmore talk was delivered on January  13, 1924, and is entitled “The Work of Spiritual Ideas in Sense Consciousness." It is based on Genesis 47:1-12 in which Joseph’s family is permitted to come to the land of Goshen by Pharoah. The key concepts is that we must allow our higher spiritual consciousness to enter into sense consciousness without becoming a part of it so that sense consciousness may be redeemed, regenerated and brought to a higher plane. Fillmore stated at the end of the talk, “Let us remember this lesson and apply it definitely today in restoring our bodies to spiritual consciousness, bringing them out of mere material sensation into spiritual activity through the power of the Lord Jesus Christ, our great brother, our great pioneer in these mighty realms of Spirit and matter, because Spirit and matter are unified in the one who understands the divine law.”

    In the final segment, we turned our attention to The Revealing Word where we explored from “generic” to “God.”

    Episode Description:
    This week we explore a talk given by Charles Fillmore on “The Authority of the Divine Feminine Restored." It was delivered on January 16, 1916. Fillmore focuses on the Divine Feminine in two ways. First, this is a talk directed at men to listen to their wives and the importance of man having a woman in his life to have access to her intuitive knowing. Second, he shares that each of us have the Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine in consciousness and so, metaphysically and metaphorically we must be using both aspects to produce a good life. He states there is a law: “The Law is that the feminine quality shall go into every affair of life. It is necessary.” Fillmore also speculates that Jesus had a wife and it was Mary the sister of Martha. He says, “We cannot escape the conclusion that Jesus Christ himself had a wife.”

    In The Revealing Word, we explored from “gate, narrow” to generation.

    This week we review a talk given by Charles Fillmore on July 28, 1921. The title is “Faith: Preamble to the Christian Business Man’s Constitution." It includes a reading of the preamble and affirmation statement. Both formed the basis for the way in which Unity conducted the business side of its ministry. This model would serve today’s business world. Fillmore says, “So you must make up your mind that you must give value received for value given. You must render a value for the good that you get from this omnipresent life, substance, intelligence and power. And in our work we start fundamentally with that proposition that all things are here, waiting for us to appropriate them, to enter into ths great storehouse of the Infinite Mind and take whatsoever we need.” Notice Fillmore says TAKE whatsoever we need and not ask. This is because Infinite Mind is made up of Divine Ideas and we must take and appropriate them in order to use them. Fillmore also emphasizes the importance of being in loving service.

    Episode Description:
    This week’s talk, "Forgiveness," was delivered by Charles Fillmore on October 29, 1924. It begins with a short explanation and example of “that something that jumps up inside” and seems to give us ideas. Fillmore calls this “the higher self.” He says, “It makes a difference how you identify this voice that talks to you … I have found that for those people who give it the name of the Lord it can’t be wrong. It is Spirit.” Fillmore shares: “In all your experiences see it spiritually and think about it spiritually. The forgiveness part is about forgiving ourselves our ignorance for it is just ignorance that makes us think such things as evil and ignorant states of consciousness.” He says our first prayer should be “Forgive me my ignorance.” He also says we should forgive ourselves for our thoughts of limitation.

During the program I amp up Charles Fillmore’s affirmation to: I exert myself so that the Christ I already am expresses fully. The talk ended with this: “You will find that in this inner spiritual silence you will develop an assurance and with it a power of the Spirit that you had no idea you possessed … and raise you up higher and higher in consciousness until you enter into the kingdom of the heavens here and now.”

    This week’s talk given by Charles Fillmore was entitled “Review: Prophetic Vision Active.” It was given on Sunday, December 18, 1927.  Fillmore offers a perspective that both adds to metaphysical insight and complements our cultural/ historical study of the Bible. Fillmore suggests the prophets should be divided into the demonstrating and discerning prophets. Fillmore states that “religion is progressive, … But I can’t help but think that religion is evolutionary; that we evolve in spiritual understanding.“
     
    In The Revealing Word we explored from “food” to “free will.”  Fillmore states, “… true forgiveness is only established through renewing the mind and body with thoughts and words of Truth.”
  • Episode: Transmutation
    Original air date: Tuesday, February 21, 2012
    Episode Description:
    This week’s talk given by Charles Fillmore was titled “Transmutation.” We do not know when it was given. It focuses on regeneration and the Twelve Powers, especially the Power of Power or Dominion. It is a metaphysical interpretation of Jesus’ first miracle at the Wedding of Cana. In it Fillmore refers to three steps in the action of the mind: First, the consciousness of an idea; second, working out the idea in consciousness, and then the third is the one of execution, setting forth, making manifest in the outer. Toward the end, Fillmore metaphysically interprets the elements of communion, wine and bread.

    In The Revealing Word, we reviewed from “feet” to “flocks.”

    Episode Description:
    This week’s talk was delivered by Charles Fillmore on Sunday, September 3, 1933, and is titled, "Love Leads to Power." Fillmore differentiates among the fleshly love (the love of sensation), human love (love of family—father, mother, sister, brother, sweetheart) and spiritual love. The first two are essentially selfish, while spiritual love "forgets self in its desire to help others." Other interesting points Charles Fillmore makes include, "Man does give character to this universal either by his thought, and it is our thought that is the great transformer of our minds." He also shared that, “Our greatest need is to understand the law of thought, especially thought turned to love." Finally, at the end of the talk, Fillmore strongly emphasizes the importance of women and their love of peace that is helping to transform the world. "When the women of the land rise up in their might and demand the reign of love and peace in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, it will come to pass overnight."

It was delivered by Charles Fillmore on August 4, 1925, and is titled, "Getting Into the Work of Spirit.” It begins with an explanation of prayer and then concentrates on statement: “In my love toward God, am I fulfilling that first Commandment: ‘Thou shalt love the Lord they God with all they heart, and with all they soul, and with all they mind.'” It is then amped up to today’s language. Charles also talks about first receiving in mind and then receiving in some visible manifestation. In the second part of the talk, Fillmore shares about the importance of the Unity work to the world. Charles emphasizes: “The greatest work of men is to teach the world of morality based on spiritual understanding, but you will never be a good teacher until you begin to teach yourself, unfold the great powers within yourself.”
     
    A good deal of time is invested in reviewing entries in The Revealing Word from “Faithless Generation” to “Feet.”

    This week’s talk, delivered by Charles Fillmore on November 30, 1913, is titled "The Necessity of Expression.” This is one of the most direct talks by Charles Fillmore. Fillmore concluded with this: "You have the power within yourself. ... Realize this and erase, through absolute denial, from your mind all that would seem to oppose it in the material, in the surroundings, [and] in the thoughts of your mind. Wipe it all away, and come rejoicing, giving thanks to the great I AM for your spiritual sight, for your understanding."

    This week's talk, shared by Charles Fillmore on October 18, 1931, was entitled, "The Aggressive Christian." It focuses on the need to get rid of the old ideas that are holding in consciousness. Fillmore shares, "We have to break up the old to get into the new." He also stresses the importance to "see ourselves as Divine instead of human." Finally, Charles Fillmore makes a very important point about his view of Jesus Christ: "And, by being loyal to Jesus Christ as the Great Demonstrator and this Prince, this Holy One of God in ourselves, we develop it, we bring it forth; and although everything seems for a time to be turned upside down, good comes of it."
     
    In The Revealing Word, we began with "Faith, How Cultivated" and ended with "Faith, Understanding."

    This week’s lesson is entitled “Bringing Good out of Evil” and was given by Charles Fillmore on July 26, 1931. Fillmore shares his view about good and evil. He states, “Any argument to the effect that evil is necessary to the bringing forth of good is of no effect at all. It is futile.” I share that we can use “evil” to bring forth good and blessings, if we so choose. Fillmore states, “The actor … determines whether the action, whether the energy, whether the life is to be good or not good." He also speaks to religious persecution and ends with an interesting support of the system in Russia during his time. In The Revealing Word we reviewed from “faculty, spiritual” to “ faith cure.” Next week we begin with the term “faith, how cultivated.”

    Episode Description:
    This week’s lesson is entitled, “The Distinguishing Trait of the Christ Mind,” and was given by Charles Fillmore on March 26, 1933. It is a review lesson that followed a series of 12. Fillmore starts out by saying there are several traits and alludes to the Twelve Powers. In the talk he distinguishes several types of Truth, from the Truth of Being to the Truth of the Sign. He states, “We must not only get an understanding of Truth, but we must demonstrate it.” He also touches on the meaning of prosperity. He also shares about Satan. Most interestingly, Fillmore stated, “Satan is that phase of thought in the human mind that forms personality. Satan is not essentially evil, but if allowed dominion in man’s consciousness, separates him from his spiritual source, God Mind."

    In The Revealing Word, we reviewed from “evil” to “eyes, blind.” Next week we begin with the terms in letter F.

    Episode Description:

    This week’s lesson is entitled “Christmas," and was given by Charles Fillmore on December 19, 1923. Fillmore reflects on his view of how Christmas came about, connecting it to the various celebrations of what he called "barbarians." In the talk he shares about what the angels said: “Glory to God in the highest, peace on earth, goodwill to men.” Fillmore takes a literal view and I give it a metaphysical twist. Toward the end, Fillmore explains what holy communion is, defining the bread as Substance and the wine as Life.

    In The Revealing Word, we simply explore the term “evil.” This rich explanation of evil pulls in some of Charles Fillmore’s basic underlying beliefs. Most importantly, Fillmore states, “He [man = men and women] can do away with evil by learning rightly to use the one Power. If there were a power of evil, it could not be changed.”

He also references the Twelve Powers when he says, “We study the Scriptures in order that we may develop the great resources in our soul, but as directive and showing everyone of us where and how and through which we may come into a better understanding of those innate powers which exist in every soul." He concludes with this: “In your meditations, prayers, try to lay hold of the great invisible I AM. I Am the way. I Am the Truth, and I Am the life, in spiritual consciousness.”

Fillmore shares about the purpose of the Powers, how they are paired up and why. He also shares how the disciples represent “the history of the development of a higher consciousness in man.”  Two key ideas that Fillmore shared: 1) “So each of these faculties are often possessed of adverse thought.” 2) “All these faculties have to be educated and instructed.” We wrap up with The Revealing Word, beginning with “Eden, Garden of” and going to “egotism.”

    This week we explored a Charles Fillmore talk entitled, "Thanksgiving." It was given on Sunday, November 29, 1925. While the lesson does not relate well to the Scripture, this is a very good talk on the importance of giving. Fillmore shares, “If we give in the right attitude, we always receive. … We might begin in our giving by accompanying it with a cheerful, glad thought; begin with gladness.”

    This week we finish exploring a talk given by Charles Fillmore October 5, 1926, “Denials and Affirmations.” Fillmore focuses on denials and their importance in the process of letting go, releasing our grip on things and thoughts. All of this is for affirming and claiming the Truth so we put on this “new man of Christ.”
     
    Next we explore a very early Twelve Powers talk given on April 10, 1910, titled “The Faculties of Mind.” Fillmore shares about the purpose of the Powers, how they are paired up and why.

    This week we finished exploring a talk given by Charles Fillmore on April 2, 1931, entitled "Weakness Changed to Power." A key idea from this talk is, “Everything that we do, everything that we think, everything that we work, everything that we say, represents some idea in the One Mind, the Source of all ideas.” Fillmore also shares: “There are two baptisms always: one of denial and the other of affirmation.”
     
    Then we explored another talk entitled "Denials and Affirmations," given by Charles Fillmore on October 5, 1926. This very clear talk is full of great ideas. One being, “It means this denial just lets go. It unclasps, it’s clinching fear and releasing, dissipates and is lost in the great universal … Relax your idea in your mind. That’s denial.”
     
    We will complete this talk during the next program.

    Episode Description:
    This week we explore a talk given by Charles Fillmore entitled "Power," given on April 17, 1910. Fillmore emphasizes that we all are and have Power. Fillmore said, “If Jesus Christ taught and demonstrated the power, that there must be, somewhere in man, an undeveloped set of faculties.” Fillmore also shared about obedience. It is not like obedience to a person or authority. It is more like we get the results we want when we are obedient to the laws of electricity or gravity.
     
    We also reviewed a Charles Fillmore talk given on April 2, 1931, entitled "Weakness Changed to Power." A key idea from this talk is, “Everything that we do, everything that we think, everything that we work, everything that we say, represents some idea in the One Mind, the Source of all ideas.”

It focuses on the Power of the Word and how this teaching goes way back to ancient Hebrew customs and perhaps back to the Egyptians and maybe even Atlantis. Fillmore explores how these ancient people bound strips of cloth to their bodies with words written on them. One interesting point he makes is this, “Now, there is no distinction between the Jehovah consciousness of the Hebrews and the Christ Consciousness of the Christians; they are identical.” We will then wrap it up with a few words from The Revealing Word, beginning with “disciple” and ending with “discrimination.”

Some key ideas presented in it were “every attainment is preceded by a desire,” the concept that the I AM can swing inward to the Oneness or outward to form, and that humankind is responsible for the good and the bad.

It is about how, when we grow spiritually, we get a kind of anointing of Spirit—a realization of a higher Truth. Then we begin living from that higher level. We’ll also discuss a couple of good examples of Metaphysical Bible interpretation.

    In The Revealing Word, we’ll begin with the D's, starting with the first entry, “dainties, king’s” and continuing through “days, three.” This will be a rich sharing and expansion of the terms found in The Revealing Word.

    Our talk for this episode, “The Overcoming of Fear,” was given by Charles Fillmore on September 26, 1923. In Charles’ own words, “Consequently we are really talking about nothing when we talk about fear. At the same time we have to consider nothing sometimes. If we have believed in nothing, and if you believe in nothing, you have to deal with nothing, don’t you see? The overcoming of fear begins with understanding God, continues with affirming Truth and using the law of mind [action] to shift our attention away from fear to God."

    In this episode, we’ll begin the exploration of Lesson 12, “The Confession and Establishment of Faith,” given by Charles Fillmore during the first healing conference on July 15, 1923. This talk is basically about claiming our True Nature. Fillmore says, “I am the Son of God; I know I am.” Today, I believe, we would simply say "I am Christ." Fillmore shares some about what the personality is. The most stunning thing Fillmore says is this: “God doesn’t give us anything at all. We say God gives us everything. He doesn’t give us anything.”

    Nex, we’ll continue our series from The Revealing Word. We’ll begin with the word, “courage,” and move through and the words “creative Principle.”

    Episode Description:
    In this episode, we began the exploration of Lesson 10, entitled “Judgment and Justice,” given by Charles Fillmore during the first healing conference on July 13, 1923. Fillmore begins as he often does by reinforcing the concept that the totality of God is within man, humankind. He talks a little bit about the Twelve Powers in this way: “We want this Christ in us and we want all the faculties.” So our focus is on the Power of Judgment or Wisdom. The location is at the pit of the stomach. He wraps up the talk by telling us, “You must use judgment, discrimination, in what you eat. You must use judgment in judging other people.” Fillmore also said this: "God laid down a law and we have to conform to that law. If we do not conform to it, we suffer the consequences, but there isn’t a law calling down the law upon us."

    Episode Description:
    In this episode we continue exploring the ninth lesson given by Charles Fillmore during the first healing conference. The focus is on Will and Understanding. He states, “Your will is the determining factor in your consciousness. That is, it determines your activity.” Will and understanding work together. However, the will is not to be used from human understanding. Fillmore’s emphasis is on the importance of moving from intellectual understanding to Spiritual Understanding. Intellectual understanding is based on human knowing while Spiritual Understanding is based on Spirit. Fillmore also gets into a discussion about our will and God’s Will. What’s the difference? We'll explore then look at a few terms found in The Revealing Word, beginning with the term “consecration,” and continuing through “conversion.”

    Episode Description:
    In this episode we wrapped up the eigth lesson given in the 12-lesson series at the first Healing Conference. It focused on the Power of Imagination and how we use that to give shape and form to our bodies and our lives. One of the more interesting things Charles Fillmore shared is this: “Quit talking about yourself as belonging to the human family. You are the Son of God and you must affirm this Sonship.” Fillmore also affirmed, “Now God made me in his mind a perfect man-woman.” He went on to say, “I like to think of myself as being a woman as well as a man.”

    Then we launch into the ninth lesson that was first given on July 12, 1923, entitled, “Will and Understanding.” In it, he focuses upon this concept: “Your will is the determining factor in your consciousness. That is, it determines your activity.” Fillmore begins to make the point of the importance of getting into the inner mind and realizing through understanding. Will and Understanding work together.

    We will then look at a few terms found in The Revealing Word, beginning with the term, “consciousness” and ending with “consciousness, total.”

    Join us as we explore two-thirds of the seventh talk in a series given at Unity’s first healing conference, originally given on July 9, 1923. It is entitled, “God.” Interestingly, Fillmore begins this talk being very anthropomorphic in his references to God. At times, he contradicts other positions he has taken in this series. For example, he clearly states that we use God. Here he talks about cooperating with God. Listen and find out how all this is resolved. The largest focus is on three of the Twelve Powers—Faith, Love and Understanding. It turns out that the way he is using Understanding in this talk is really the Power of Judgment.

    Episode Description:
    In this episode we are continuing our series from the first Healing Conference held in July 1923, completing the fourth lesson. The last part of this lesson emphasizes the power of thought being implanted into the subconscious mind as a seed thought. And eventually, as this seed thought expresses, you will reap it “tomorrow, next week, or next year.” The way to intervene in this process is from our Higher Power. We say to the accumulated evil (error), “Get out; I dissolve you. I have no further use for you.” We then affirm the Truth.

    In the final segment, we will explore entries from The Revealing Word, beginning with the term “communion” and continuing through “companionship.“

  • Episode: God Is
    Original air date: Tuesday, September 30, 2008
    Episode Description:
    This week we review the phrase “God is the invisible and the visible.” This is not such a commonly heard phrase unless you experience the Divine Science flavor of New Thought. And, even when devotees of Divine Science are pressed, they will concede that at least there are some aspects of the visible that are not God, namely disease. From a Unity perspective, this phrase would be simplified to “God is the invisible.” Or we could say “God is the invisible in the Absolute.” Email questions about the ego/personality and whether it was and is responsible for the crises in our world are addressed. The difference between A Course in Miracles view of the ego and how Unity views the ego is explored as well as the Power of Zeal.

The replacement phrase would be something like, “I heard or hear my Inner call.” We then looked into the meaning of “thou should not kill” as well as explored the Power of Love. This Power is so much more than simply our “affectional” nature. It is the Power behind the Law of Mind Action and the Law of Attraction.
  • Episode: God Is All
    Original air date: Tuesday, September 09, 2008
    Episode Description:

  • Original air date: Tuesday, August 05, 2008
    Episode Description:
    "Let go, let God" becomes "leash ego, unleash my God Self." This change of the phrase brings us back to the awareness of Oneness and our own power in any given situation. We want to move the awareness of ego to the background while moving the awareness of Christ Nature to the foreground. We also explore degeneration, unregenerate, and regeneration. Some time is invested in looking at how to apply a Power in a general way followed by looking at the Power of Judgment.
  • Original air date: Tuesday, July 22, 2008
    Episode Description:
    "When I tell God my plan, God laughs. When God tells me His plan, I laugh.” This is all about an anthropomorphic God separate from us. The Truth is “we” are the Oneness, the flow of Illumination that is God/ Spirit. So God is the flow of wisdom and understanding that we are from which we know what to do. We also explore who we are praying to, respond to a question about how to handle uncomfortable reactions at work. Finally, the power of Judgment is reviewed.

    Original air date: Tuesday, July 15, 2008

We look at what spirit-soul-body might be in the context of regeneration and finally we introduced the power of Understanding.
  • Original air date: Tuesday, July 08, 2008
    Episode Description:
    This week we explore a cluster of phrases: “I’ll get in when I am supposed to," "I’ll get it if I was meant to have it," "I guess I wasn’t meant to have it," and "I guess it wasn’t meant to be.” These were updated to: “I’ll get it when I support it," "I’ll get it when I mean it," and "I guess I did not mean it.” The remainder of the program looks at “”Don’t worry, be happy,” regeneration and the spiritual soul and spiritual body as well as the power will.

  • Original air date: Tuesday, June 24, 2008
    Episode Description:
    This week we explore the commonly used phrase "It was an act of God." Again, it is all about a God outside causing disasters that we then have to deal with. The replacement phrase becomes something like: "It was an effect of mass consciousness," or in a more general way, "It was an effect of error thought." The remainder of the program includes an exploration of the Twelve Powers and their importance.

    This week we romp through the two phrases, "I'm in the flow," and "I'm not in the flow." The Truth is you are the flow. We also explore illness and disease and cause and effect. Because we are every oneness in mass consciousness, a person could be working on their own consciousness and still not cause a change in their own physical expression. This does not mean they have failed.

  • Original air date: Tuesday, May 13, 2008
    Episode Description:
    In this program, we first explore the phrase “It’s all happening as it is supposed to happen.” This phrase is another one that abdicates our power. It assumes that there is a cosmic deity micromanaging the universe. The replacement phrase is “What happens, happens.” Then we launch into the physical universe, who or what created it? How did it happen and what can we do about it?
  • Original air date: Tuesday, May 06, 2008
    Episode Description:
    We start off exploring the phrase “Be careful what you pray for.” We update to “Be sure your prayers are care-filled.” If anything, prayer should not be tinged with fear and guilt. And prayer is not so much about the goodies we get as it is about the Goodness we realize we are. Next we explore how we know we are ready. Then we look at visioning a bit more as well as how we go about “languaging” our understanding of spiritual Truths.
  • Original air date: Tuesday, April 29, 2008
    Episode Description:
    “It is all happening and it is supposed to happen” is explored today. It is changed to “What happens happens.” And further, “What happens, happens by choice.” That choice is yours or someone else’s. The final word is not what happens. It is how we use what happens to prove there is One Power, One Presence. The link between visioning and spiritual treatment is explored as well as Unity’s view of angels. Finally, we look at the idea that humankind is experiencing events because God wants to experience them as It expands the universe.
  • Original air date: Tuesday, April 22, 2008
    Episode Description:
    This week we explore two sayings: “Birds of a feather flock together” and “Opposites attract.” A bit more is shared on how Unity views the ego; “through the door of its consciousness must be passed all the treasures of God” (Keep A True Lent, pg. 55). Letting our spiritual nature determine whether something is Truth or not is also examined. Finally, we dive into the deep pool of who or what manifested and is manifesting the physical universe.
